desperate owner
we bought a puppy from the pet shop as we saw her there for 4 months and felt really bad for her, she' s such a lovely little thing and we have had her for 2.5 years now. the problem with her is that she gets hysterical when we leave her alone at home. i work for 3 hours 4 days a week, other than that she is with us. when i leave her she screams and barks terribly. i have a DAP diffuser, and use a collar that sprays her when she barks. i ignore her when i leave and when i come home so that she will realise that it is no " event"  when i go and nothing to get stressed about. she was ok for a while but now she wees on our beds and the mats inside from time to time, she also makes a terrible fuss when we walk her, pulling and generally barking. we are desperate to sort out this behaviour so that it is easier to manage her, as we dont feel that simply giving her away is a solution. any ideas?
